Creative Week is an event by Capetonians and coordinated by Creative Cape Town, a programme of the Cape Town Partnership. The week-long celebration serves to highlight the city’s vibrant creative sector as well as a platform for expression, community engagement and experimentation.

Encouraging you to turn the city inside out and explore, view and experience the city unexpected ways, the Creative Week programme will evolve in the next few weeks as the crowdsourced calendar is populated with events from the community.

Creative Weeke brings you an array of events to expand the mind, from lectures to launches, fun happenings that defy conventional categorisation, activities that get people on the go – whether walking, cycling or doing yoga and anything visual goes; from film screenings to street art  interventions or pop-up exhibitions.

Here are some events on the programme that can give you an idea of what to expect

- Photographer Ed Suter, author of the book Sharp Sharp, will host a photographic exploration of Cape Town’s Central City, examining street culture through the camera.

- Curator Shani Judes will organize a series of public art experiences that will explore various types of public art, from the CBD to the Cape Flats, and Khayelitsha.

- Photographer Andrew Brauteseth will host a photography walkabout through the CBD, offering participants a glimpse into what makes urban life so diverse and interesting to document.

- Creative Cape Town’s Meet the Makers series will offer a glimpse into the spaces, personalities and processes of  local creative practitioners through a series of studio visit experiences.

- International Park (ing) day is on 20 September, and Capetonians can look forward to more parklets popping up around town, a legacy from Creative Week 2011, when metered parking bays into temporary urban mini-parks.
